We had the wonderful Dr. Tine Bech come into our class and do a workshop on Design for Play. Gamification is a process of taking something that already exists and integrating game mechanics into it to motivate participation, engagement and loyalty. Gamification takes the data-driven techniques that game designers use to engage players, and applies them to non-game experiences to motivate actions that add value to your business.It s not about creating something new. It is about amplifying the effect of an existing, core experience by applying the motivational techniques that make games so engaging.
